This year is a very old school final four after the end of the Cinderella stories. The Miami Hurricanes lost to the Kansas Jayhawks, and the St. Peter’s Peacocks lost to the North Carolina Tar Heels. Three of our Final Four teams are college blue bloods, and you may be able to consider Villanova in that discussion.
The Final Four teams include the Villanova Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels, and the Duke Blue Devils. There are so many storylines coming out of this, especially on the left side of the bracket. One of the greatest rivalries in college basketball will mark another chapter in its historic run.
What could arguably be one of the most historic matchups in the history of the NCAA, with North Carolina looking to end Coach Kryzewski’s career. Duke, on the other hand, is looking to send Coach K out victorious with a National Championship. So get ready to bet on the Final Four games.
March Madness Final Four Games
Team to Win it All
The Duke Blue Devils will be the team to win the National Championship. Have your headlines ready because Coach K will leave at the top of the nation with a victory.
The regular-season champions out of the ACC finished second at the conference tournament and came into the NCAA Tournament as a two-seed. Duke currently has a record of 32-6 on the season, and they have been solid in the NCAA Tournament so far.
To get to the Final Four, Duke beat Cal State Fullerton in the first round, 78-61. For the first time, Coach K and Mike Izzo met in the second round, where Duke won 85-76.
Headlined by a star freshman, Paolo Banchero has led the Blue Devils this season in scoring and rebounds. On the season, Banchero averages 17.1 points per game and 7.7 rebounds. Banchero has led Duke in scoring in three of the four games this postseason already.
The Blues Devils have a little bit of everything in terms of play on the court. Wendell Moore Jr. is second in points per game on the season for Duke with 13.5 points. Duke has a total of five players averaging double figures on the season.
We see a Duke vs Kansas matchup in the NCAA Championship. With the injury at the end of the game to Justin Moore, that takes a lot of scoring away from Villanova. The Wildcats are very disciplined, and they are a great team, but when you take away their second-leading scorer, that hurts them very bad.
Led by Ochai Agbaji, the Kansas Jayhawks are a real threat in the final games. Agbaji averages 18.9 points per game to lead Kansas this season. The Jayhawks are the final #1 seed left in the tournament after Arizona lost to Houston in the Sweet 16.
In the end, Duke will win their sixth National Championship in program history and sending Coach K off as a winner and a national champion.
